Shift #13

My word for 2021 is shift. Like everyone I know, I’ve learned a lot, since this time last year. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is that change and uncertainty just are. Since I’m not in control of much more than which yoga pants, Zoom-appropriate top, and slippers I’ll wear each day, I needed to figure out how I could deal with all the change and uncertainty. That’s where shifting comes in.

For me, shifts involve acceptance and adjustment. I know I don’t have much control, but I have unlimited choices. I can shift

Some of my recent shifts have been pretty significant. Some have been tiny. Some haven’t happened, yet. And I’m sure I’ll make a lot of shifts I can’t even imagine

Getting away with four beloved longtime pals, to celebrate the milestone birthday of one of us was exactly the shift we all needed this past week.

This was our ‘Cowgirls at the Chuckwagon’ night. The birthday gal, Jackie, is pictured top left.
This is where we stayed.
This was one of our views.
And here’s a clip for one of our adventures.

Yep, shifts take all shapes and sizes. And they work, on so many levels.

What kind of shifts have you experienced, lately?

  1. I suppose you could call me a shape shifter. I’ve gone from a skinny kid to a muscular young man to a fat middle aged guy to a skinny old guy to a muscular senior and finally an old man whose weight goes up and down depending on what I ate or drank and whether not the moon is full. As for run on sentences, I meant to do that. So, if one of your shifts includes that of grammer police, know this….I don’t care what others think anymore. That alone will make one skinny or fat. Personally, I rather go outside naked and howl at the moon.

  2. Sonny, you’re a shape shifter indeed! I’m guessing you’re not alone in that. 😜
    And you can trust no grammar police abide here. Thanks for joining in the shift conversation. Howl on!
